It's the final hours of the Wizard School Kickstarter

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1018340123/wizard-school

  (00:00) to (02:00)


Hank: Just gonna make sure this is actually working 'cause you never know.  Hm.  How do I go to the page?  There it is.  Here it is.  Alright, I'm gonna Tweet this, 'cause nobody's here yet.  Just gonna make sure this is actually working.  There are people here.  MattSanta95 is here.  'Cause you never know.  Oh, well, now I'm going to create a giant echo, I apologize for that.  Um, alright, here's...Alright.  Put that on Twitter, that I should have copied it before I Tweeted it, so that I could paste it in my Facebook, but I didn't.  Where is--huhhh.  Where did Twitter go?  Did I just--I just closed the window, didn't I?  Oh man.  Okay.  If you got any questions for me regarding Wizard School or other stuff, just let me know, and Facebook, I will be looking at the chat momentarily.  Not yet right now.  


  (02:00) to (04:00)


Uh, okay.  I should probably also put the link to the Kickstarter in the livestream.  I didn't think about that.  Okay, alright, okay, alright, alright, alright, okay.  If you have any requests for songs I should play, let me know.  I'm gonna make a Snapchat right now, you guys are gonna see how that goes.  I will be joined, I believe, sometime during this cast by Eric Johns and Karen Hallion, the two people who are working on this with us.  I'm gonna make a Snapchat right now.  


Hello, everybody on Snapchat!  This is Hank.  I'm about to do a livestream--I currently am, they're watching me, at youtube.com/hankschannel, to celebrate the end of the blaghablah.  I have to do it again.  Only ten seconds.  Hello, everybody on Snapchat!  I'm doing a livestream right now, they're watching me record this, to celebrate the end of the Wizard School Kickstarter, so join me at youtube.com/hankschannel.  Exactly ten seconds, I'm a pro!  


I bet a bunch of my Snapchat followers don't even know that I have a hankschannel.  I'm also posting my video of Mt. Rainier or nearby Mt. Rainier-like thing, so let's open up the chat and see what's going on.  Uh, people are requesting Book Eight, Anglerfish, people like my shirt.  School of wizards!  Are there witches allowed?  Uh, wizards in our world is a gender-neutral term.  Are you wearing--I am wearing my Amazon shirt, how could you tell?


  (04:00) to (06:00)


Five whole people and one half person.  Nobody's here?  There's five whole people and one half--who's the half person?  This isn't Hogwarts.  Already refreshing my Snapchat, says Rafaela.  Alright.  Play Marilyn Hanson.  Strange Charm.  It's nice to meet you.  Did you meet me recently?  It was nice to meet you too, if so.  If not, then you're just being weird.  How do I convince my board game obsessed dad to buy Wizard School?  I mean, I don't know, I'm not him.  Make him think it was his idea, and be like, "Hey, Dad, have you ever thought to yourself, boy, I sure would like a game that's a card game that's cooperative?"  I'm trying not to stand up 'cause my dog freaks out when I stand up.  She also freaks out when I sing songs and play music, so let's hope--hopefully that won't happen.  What is the joke about Becky?  Amazingly, my guitar is not that out of tune, considering that I had my heater off for the last few days  Karen Hallion creates all the graphics for Wizard School, she will hopefully be here soon, I can't say for sure.  Nope, nope, nope.  I can't say for sure that she'll show up, but that was the goal, but she was planning to be here in about a half an hour, so that's the plan right now.  Alright, let's play--let's play a song for you, uh, and during the song, if you have any questions about the Kickstarter, just let me know.  I'm very--I guess I should let you know, very excitedly that we have raised at the moment, $400,000--$442,291 of our $15,000 goal, and I'll be completely honest with you, I was pretty sure we were gonna beat our $15,000 goal.


  (06:00) to (08:00)


I, uh, and we needed more than that probably--we woulda done it for $15,000, we would have made it work, but really to like, actually produce the game, it's more like $50,000, but we broke that as well.  Of course, every time we get money from our Kickstarter, that money is going to producing more copies of Wizard School for people.  If you can't get Wizard School now, it will eventually be available at DFTBA.com, and it might be available in stores, fingers crossed, you never really know how that goes, because it's up to the stores to decide.  Oh, we just got another pledge!  They just keep rolling in.  Thank you all so much for the support, and here is a song in celebration of JK Rowling's recent proclamation that the West End play is basically book eight of Harry Potter, here it is, Book Eight, a song I wrote.  


I know I'm not--ugh--I know I'm not the only one


Who wants to know more about Harry's sons.


I really do think there's an unwritten story,


and I think it's time to put fingers to keys


 


A lot of people I know wanna know more


about Grindelwald and Dumbledore


I really do think that they both batted lefty,


and I think there's probably a good story there


for Book Eight.


I want a book eight.


I--what?  book eight.  


I want a book eight.


I want a book eight.


 


And I want JK Rowling to say that


the epilogue was crap


'cause we all know it was crap.


And I want JK Rowling to say that


Voldemort had a son,


and the story's just begun.


And I want JK Rowling to say that


she's writing book eight.


 


 


  (08:00) to (10:00)


uhhh...I'm scrolling down on my own lyrics. 


A lot of people I know wanna hear the tale


of that mysterious veil


I really do think it's a dimensional portal,


and I think Sirius is in Middle Earth.


 


And I know I wanna hear the one


about Hagrid's dad and Hagrid's mum,


I really do think that that's nearly impossible,


and I think there's probably a good story there


for Book Eight.


I want a book eight.


I want a book eight.  


 


And I want JK Rowling to say that


the epilogue was crap, 


'cause we all know it was crap,


and I want JK Rowling to say that


Voldemort had a son,


and the story's just begun,


and I want JK Rowling to say,


that she's writing book eight.


 


She could call--She--She could call it Harry Potter and Pillar of Storge--


by the way, during this part of the song, if you would like to request for me to say something as a title for a possible future Harry Potter novel, please do in the chat, and I will do my best to incorporate them once I find the chat.  There it is.

  (10:00) to (12:00)




  (12:00) to (14:00)


Man, I'll tell you what I haven't done in a while is played the guitar.  Ahh, my fingers.  Oof.  Do we have any--has anyone--my speakers are on, right?  Yeah, okay.  Just makin' sure that nobody joined us in the intervening time.  No one has.  We've got some other requests.  Oh, I have a song which is very similar to the idea of Wizard School, and in some ways, Wizard School is kind of my own version of a book eight, like, it's a bit of a, you know, it's obviously not based on the world of Harry Potter, but it's a bit of a, you know, it's like, what, you know, starting from the place of Wizard School, what would that world look like for me?  I guarantee you that there would be no advertisements that played music and sound ever anywhere!  Good lord.  Are you joking with me?  Okay.  I'm gonna play you a song.  It's called "This Isn't Hogwarts".  


  (14:00) to (16:00)


I hate this place.  


I can barely keep the misery off my face.


Yeah, there's one place I'd much rather be,


Takin' transfiguration and arithmancy,


or hangin' with my friends at the owlery.


But instead, I'm learning parts of speech,


and tryin' not to fall asleep,


and avoiding the only girl in school who might like me.


 


It's so grotesque,


When the guy sitting next to you drools all over his test,


And as I almost raise my hand to complain,


I realize that I wanna be doin' the same,


so I put my head down on my desk as well.


And then suddenly I'm learning a spell 


to make my teacher's head swell


but then he wakes me up 


and I can't help but yell "ENGORGIO!"


 


This isn't Hogwarts,


this is a concrete box,


and the pictures on the wall are never gonna talk,


and the teachers don't care if the kids don't try,


and the most magical thing we have is fluorescent lights,


and they don't put you in Hufflepuff if you're not cool,


instead they'll (?-15:15) in the parking lot after school,


and I think if I looked into the Mirror of Erised,


I'd be wearin' wizard robes with gold and red.


 


Well, I'm not saying I'm not proud to be a nerd,


but public school ain't no place for a wizard,


Yeah, high school ain't no place for a wizard.


 


You know what's gross?


When the lunch meat looks like three day old soggy toast,


at least it's not sentient


but as I ate it anyway, I overheard


this guy I hardly know callin' me a nerd,


so I cast Sectumsempra on him inside my mind.


How I wish there were house elves makin' my food,


and everything was perfectly spiced,


and the only bein' rude was the poltergeist.


 


And here's what's true.


I'd do pretty much anything to go to wizard school.


I'd even call Delores Umbridge my friend 


if it meant I never had to go to gym again,


and I look around at all of this crap that's part of my life.


No ghosts stalking the halls,


or hangin' in the bathroom stalls,


and the stairs don't move 'cause there's no stairs at all.


  (16:00) to (18:00)


Oh, this isn't Hogwarts,


this is a concrete box,


and the pictures on the wall are never gonna talk,


and the teachers don't care that the kids don't try,


and the most magical thing we have is fluorescent lights,


and they don't put you in Hufflepuff if you're not cool,


instead they sort you in the parking lot after school,


and I think if I looked into the Mirror of Erised,


I'd be wearin' wizard robes with gold and red,


 


Well, I'm not sayin' I'm not proud to be a nerd,


but public school ain't no place for a wizard,


yeah, high school ain't no place for a wizard.


 


Whoo!  What--oh--we got--did someone join me?  I hear a noise!
